Goat Cheese Pesto
From EatingWell: August/September 2005
The taste of soft goat cheese is more present in this California version of pesto than Parmigiano-Reggiano is in a basil pesto. Consider it a multidimensional recipe: dip, sauce and spread.
- 4 ounces soft goat cheese, crumbled
- 1 cup packed flat-leaf parsley leaves, (1-2 bunches)
- 1/2 cup packed fresh oregano leaves, (1 bunch)
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Place all ingredients in a food processor; pulse a few times, then process until fairly smooth, or to the desired consistency, scraping down the sides occasionally.
